John W. Eaton, the original author and primary maintainer of Octave just joined our team within ESI Group.
Octave was first intended as an academic companion software for a chemical engineering course. But ever since its first release in 1994 (same year as Scilab !), it got closer to the Matlab language.
- This demonstrates once again the commitment of ESI Group to open-source. Now part of our team in ESI Group, John Eaton will continue hisstrong involvement in the development of Octave. And Octave (in parallel with Scilab) will continue to grow.
- Our team can now also provide services around Octave in order to fuel open-source developments.
- We are currently investigating the best ways to leverage Octave in Scilab, particularly for its excellent compatibility with the Matlab language.
Don't hesitate to contact us at team [at] scilab.iotarget="_self" if you'd like to discuss projects with Octave and/or Scilab.
